Verse 1

Where in the world will you go every day?

What will you say or do?

Who or what will you come to encounter?

Can this ever be predicted by you?

Will you foresee all the things that happen?

Can you control how they might come to be?

No, you can’t, you won’t see.

Many things happen not as you expect them to be.

Man cannot control their own fate.

 

Verse 2

The daily small things and the way they unfold,

or the patterns by which they play out

keep on reminding the humanity

that nothing happens at random,

that the course of how these things develop

and all of their inevitability

cannot be shifted by human will.

It’s far beyond their ability.

Man cannot control their own fate.

 

Pre-chorus

From trivial matters to the fate of man’s whole life.

 

Chorus

There is nothing that does not reveal

the Creator’s plans and His sovereignty,

and His authority cannot be exceeded,

His authority is supreme.

This is a truth that is everlasting.

There is nothing in the world that does not reveal

the Creator’s plans and His sovereignty.

Man cannot control their own fate.

 

Verse 3

Every happening conveys a firm warning

from Creator to mankind.

It sends a message that human beings

cannot control their own fate.

And at the same time every event

is a rebuttal to human ambitions,

futile and wild and full of desire,

to take into their hands their own lives.

Man cannot control their own fate.

 

Pre-chorus

From trivial matters to the fate of man’s whole life.

 

Chorus

There is nothing that does not reveal

the Creator’s plans and His sovereignty,

and His authority cannot be exceeded,

His authority is supreme.

This is a truth that is everlasting.

There is nothing in the world that does not reveal

the Creator’s plans and His sovereignty.

Man cannot control their own fate.

 

Bridge

They are powerful slaps about humanity’s ears,

one after another after another.

They are powerful slaps about humanity’s ears,

forcing people to reconsider

just who in the end governs their fate,

and who in the end controls it.

All their desires are repeatedly shattered.

All their ambitions are thwarted.

They can’t but accept their very fate and accept all reality.

They can’t but accept the will of Heaven

and the Creator’s sovereignty.

 

Chorus

There is nothing that does not reveal

the Creator’s plans and His sovereignty,

and His authority cannot be exceeded,

His authority is supreme.

This is a truth that is everlasting.

There is nothing in the world that does not reveal

the Creator’s plans and His sovereignty.

Man cannot control their own fate.
